Re: 2000 GL1500 SE first ride report and Introduction

Nice intro,

Just make sure you don't wear out those foot pegs.

Yes they are definitely a big bike - but also fantastic cruisers.

Enjoy - and keep the sticky side down. :)

Re: starter repacking.

I would not think you should need to repack it with grease every 6 months. Once every 6 years maybe...

What sort of grease are you using ??

Re: Ignition key

Make sure you flush the lock with some degreaser or other spray material - INOX is a favourite used by locksmiths. Glad it came out.

Re: Ignition key

If you already have a key stuck in the lock - what is the use of having a second key - you can't put it in the lock as well... :D I would try the WD40 or penetrating oil - a bit of heat and a good wiggle. It should come out - unless something else has jammed in there with it. Happened to me on a roa...

Good call "themainviking" - a sensible approach - sometimes you won't feel the wobble with a car at all - or it is less exaggerated.

Re: Bike/Trailer wobble

You need to work out your trailer dynamics. A longer tongue would more than likely address a lot of your problems - but it is also relevant when you pack your trailer that it has weight centred over the axle and slightly forward. IF you have too much weight at the rear it will fishtail all over the ...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

I would lap the valve seat - and then take it to a shop and ask them what they think - at least if you clean it up a bit may be easier for them to make a decision for you. You say the valve broke - you were very lucky.. At least I think you need possibly a new valve guide - new valve - or a replacem...

Put a dab of silicone on the screw head or the underside of the plastic clip, I'm sure they are just a push in fit and they will come loose over time

Re: Clutch going out ???

Well I reckon it would be worth investigating the clutch plates. If I can subtract correctly if you have a 1976 GL1000 then it is the young age of 42 years young - not saying there may be anything wrong with the plates, but I think you should at least have a peek a boo at their condition - 42 years ...

Have the clutch plates ever been changed and what is the mileage on the bike - might give some insight into your issue.

Re: 86 Goldwing GL 1200 Main Fuse Blowing

On the positive battery cable side -you may have fused a live wire direct to the frame somewhere when you hooked up the cables incorrectly, so each time you go to install or hook up the battery you have a dead short to the frame. I'm not real good at electrics - but something is not right - remove a...

Re: IGNITION ISSUES MY FIRST POST!

Accelerator pump needs to be cleaned - and the small jets need to be cleaned out..probably clogged or obstructed with old fuel deposits.

I believe you can use SEAFOAM to maybe assist in clearing this issue.

Nice one,

If they are CB lenses - then not as rare to find one - by an extra one - just in case - you should be set then for a while.

Re: Sidecar tail light

Not knowing the actual size of that lens - but it looks similar to a CB750 lens of many years ago - as in mid 70's style. From what is left of the existing one - I would see if it has any manufacturer names around its circumference or part number etc. If you are lucky you might find a replacement ea...

Re: Calling it a night

Scott, Simple recommendation - hindsight is also wonderful. Before you install the next one - drop it in a cup of hot water and leave it for a few minutes - fish it out- then install it - the heat will make the seal a little bit more supple - a few drops of brake fluid on the piston will also aid in...

The one with the higher OHMS - sounds like it may have some corrosion in the wires - are they copper core wires or carbon ?

Glad you were able to assist the rider - he was lucky to only have those injuries and not a lot worse.

I think from viewing the photos - it was a low speed highside - didn't seem to land too far from the bike...lucky man IMHO.

Re: 82 GLi - Keep it or ???

Apart from some general maintenance it sounds like you want to keep the bike. Can you have a buddy/friend assist in the replacement of the rotors/brake pads, etc.. can you do any of the work yourself? Can you hire a garage space to work on your bike?
